Showcasing the animals who call the habitat home, Kay and her son, Clayton educate the public about these fascinating animals, their needs and talents with “Educational Demonstrations” and animal encounters. Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary’s goal is to educate the public by fostering appreciation for animals, stressing the importance of habitat preservation and animal conservation, as well as educating the public on the negative impacts of the illegal per trade.
Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary provides a sanctuary “for life” for the exotic animals currently calling the sanctuary home. Our goal is to create habitats that mimic native environments and are complete with a staff that can provide daily behavioral, sensory, and manipulative enrichment which is the basis for a happy healthy animal in captivity. As we grow and open our habitat to more rescues we will provide the same excellent care while educating the public.
